BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:15 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a new offensive in the East Ghouta region of rural Damascus last night, targeting the Jaysh Al-Islam held village of Hawsh Al-Zriqiyah near the key town of Al-Nashabiyah.

Led by their 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the Hawsh Al-Zriqiyah axis on Thursday night, where they were confronted by a large Jaysh Al-Islam force at the village’s gates.

According to an Al-Masdar field correspondent this morning, the Syrian Arab Army is attempting to divert Jaysh Al-Islam’s forces from the Hazrama area in order to alleviate the pressure on their soldiers inside the aforementioned town.

If the Syrian Arab Army is successful at Hawsh Al-Zriqiyah, then they will have the strategic hilltop of Tal Ferzat surrounded from three different flanks, while also reaching the outskirts of Awtaya.
